Now a huge Broadway success that received a total of 14 nominations and won eight of them, including Best Musical at the 73rd Tony Awards held on June 9, 2019. Jazzy, blue. folk, opera and pop music in telling a good old story. Fantastic.

Freegal has this 2010 original album for streaming and download now.

(Surprised that Mitchell has the foresight to compose the song "Why we build the wall" in 2006 --

This retelling of the myth of Orpheus in the form of a depression-era dutbowl opera is without a doubt my favourite concept album of all time. The casting is impeccable and the writing superb. Greg Brown singing Why We Build a Wall is my highlight, but yours will vary. Highly recommended for anyone who loved O Brother Where Art Thou.

An amazing Americana opera - great premise, moving emotions, challenging ideas. Orpheus and Eurydice may want nothing more than to get out, but "Hadestown" proves a great place to spend an hour.
